GREETINGS FROM THE MAYOR

This brochure provides an overview of Fall and

Winter programs and services for your consideration,

in keeping with our mission statement to deliver

services to all citizens, enhancing the quality of life

for all who live and work within this City.

The Parks and Recreation Department provides a

variety of programs and events to present you with choice for your

leisure time and it is our hope that all our citizens will participate in

these activities.

As you may know, the City of Charlottetown adopted an Integrated

Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP). The ICSP provides the City with

a long term, forward thinking strategic plan. This plan was developed

in consultation with the community to support the realization of our

community’s sustainability objectives for its environmental, economic,

social and cultural dimensions. Many of the activities within this

Parks & Recreation Brochure contribute to creating a more healthy,

vibrant and sustainable city for future generations and compliment the

values and quality of life that we all cherish here in the Capital City.

The Parks and Recreation Department is dedicated to serving our

citizens with programs that contribute greatly to the well being

of individuals and families by offering activities which promote

health, teach new skills and at the same time provide enjoyment and

entertainment. My heartfelt appreciation to all volunteers who assist

in the delivery of all activities and events hosted in this great City.

You are the backbone of many of our community services and on

behalf of City Council our sincere thanks.

In closing, if at any time you would like to contact me or have any

suggestions to improve our services, please contact me at 566-5548.

Sincerely,

Clifford J. Lee

MAYOR

RINGETTE

CHARLOTTETOWN RINGETTE

Ringette is a fast-paced ice-skating sport enjoyed by over 25,000 Canadian girls and

women of all ages. Besides Canada, ringette is played on an organized basis in the

United States, Finland, Sweden, France and Russia.

25


The rules ensure passing, skating and teamwork are part of every game. The game

combines the fast break of basketball, the dexterity of lacrosse, the speed of hockey

and the fitness of soccer. The sport has some similarities to hockey. It’s played on ice

with skates and sticks by six players on each of two teams. And the players’ mission is

to score goals by shooting the object of play into nets at either end of the rink during

stop-time periods of play.

Charlottetown Ringette Association runs a program for players aged 5 - 18. Participants

are divided in 6 divisions by age: U – 8 (5-7) U –10 (8 - 9), U – 12 (10 - 11), U – 14

(12 - 13), U – 16 (14 - 15) and U – 18 (16 - 18). We play in leagues against other

associations in locations such as Montague, Souris and Summerside.

Registration costs for 2011-12: Resident Non Resident

1st Child $190.00 1st Child $310.00

2nd Child $175.00 2nd Child $295.00

curriculum. Our focus is on prevention; we provide opportunities that increase self-esteem,

confidence, and leadership skills. We work in partnership with youth, police, service

agencies, schools, businesses and government of all levels. The Adventure Group’s office is

located at Heartz Hall on St. Peters Road.

goal of the program is to offer participants an adventure experience that requires them

to develop team skills such as effective communication, problem solving, trust building,

leadership, and cooperative learning.

Through participating in activities incorporating these elements, individuals have been

shown to develop more positive self-concepts, increased decision making capacity and

communication skills.

support for after-school programs looking to get their members active in nature. Children

in Nature PEI provides children and youth with the opportunity to visit local natural areas,

learn about flora and fauna and take part in fun and engaging activities. They are introduced

to important nature-based themes, are encouraged to be physically active and learn the

importance of a healthy lifestyle and environment.

please contact Melissa at 892-3837 or visit www.childreninnaturepei.ca.
